way worse. the other issue is -- and i have been considered lucky, i have been to over 200 cities in several different countries. we don't make it easy for a homeless family to get out. so going back to the hud thing, if a family pays for their own hotel room, and they come to a service provider we have to say sorry, you aren't home legislation, go sleep in your car, go sleep outside before we can help you. the me that's pretty stupid. the other thing is -- it's called the continuum of care, which has set up for families to find help. but we don't talk to each other, nor is there availability. i am a family, i find help someplace. i hair about it, i go there, i sit there for five or six hours like it is a dental office, and even if they can't help me, they get paid by your data. it is so hard for rah homeless family to find help. >> and mark, we will get more -- >> may i jump in on this. >> sure. >> and i just wanted to sort of back that up, because i think he is making a good point about how systems are not really put in place to be responsive not only to the needs of the parent,

refused to welcome him to the city. stage add boycott known as the quiet riot, and natasha joins us live from miami beach with more on that. john, some people consider is this a very dark chapter, not only in the history of miami beach, and miami, but the entire south florida region. that's because half a dozen leaders on top of the governor snubbed him. now, you have to remember on a night like tonight, what their thoughts were more than 20 years later. we would have loved to interview them, but they refused to speak with us. we did speak with a prom minute liter. who put an end to what he calls the nonsenses. the city of miami beach gave the key to the city to a movie character called robo cop, but that year refused to give a key to the city to one of the most inspiring leaders in world history. when i became mayor, the whole thing seemed juvenile to me, that they refused to issue a proclamation, which they gave to the borner bartender they opened up the new store. >> but six area mayors and the governor denounced the leader after he thanked cuban president fidel castro, the libbu
